Yes thank you Jocelyn... I haven't had many responses
but this rule was in effect when I was in my first
year... It is one I would follow if I broke or messed
someone else's but is also one that is a case by case
scenario -- meaning I forgot this one (haint broke no
ones else's nuttin lately-- oh blast I guess it's
gonna happen tomorrow!!!)...
But this is a very important one because if nothing
else when someone writes it the other is less inclined
to rip there head off....
So everyone come on the few rules I have gotten are

It looks like this thread has come and gone...
But, something came to me while walking to work this morning. One of the
rules I appreciate most in our campus studio is to leave a note when one
accidentily breaks a piece of another. This applies to greenware, glazed
ware, loading mistakes and even big boo-boos that happen in the kiln
(blown up pots, fused pots, slumped pieces that were loaded half off the
shelf in a high fire, overfired work, etc). I've found that to receive a
note when such happens to your work means so much more (and results in a
better state of mind) than to simply find your piece ruined, and left with
no apology. Also, being the one who has had to write a note or two, I
feel they contribute to a more respectful atmosphere- a lesson I needed a
couple of times when loading kilns of others work after a long day.
Hope this helps,

At the studio where I teach, we have one instructor who was so notorious =
for breaking other people's work that we had little cards printed for =3D
him that read: Oops! Sorry! and his name . We gave them to him as a gag =3D
gift at his birthday party. I must say he DID use them and eventually =3D
ran out. Honest.
